A Course And A Competition ...

Firstly, the lovely, talented and knowledgeable Della Galton is holding a short story writing course. Details are below. Highly recommended!
How to write and sell short stories with Della Galton - Saturday 9 March in Bournemouth
Course Content 
This course will focus on what a short story is and how you can sell it.  We will look at existing short story markets (including magazines) and up to date information on what those markets require.  We will also be looking at other paying short story markets (including podcasts) and what they require. Advice will be given on house style and how to find ideas to suit your intended market. Courses are run on an informal lecture/discussion group basis.

Time and Cost
10.00 am to 4.00 pm
For more details, and to book, see Della's website.
Secondly, the equally lovely Jane Wenham Jones has a fabulous competition on the go at the moment to win a writing course in the Dordogne in September at the fabulous Chez-Castillon.
It's to celebrate her newest Wannabe Book - 100 Ways to Fight the Flab - the Wannabe Guide to a Better Bottom, which is currently out on Kindle. 
Full details of that are on Jane's blog.
I can highly recommend both Jane's teaching and Chez Castillon, so this is an amazing opportunity for someone.
I'll be reviewing 100 Ways To Fight The Flab on here soon, and you can read about how wonderful Chez castillon is here, and see their website here.

Hi there, my name is Rose, and you were recommended to me by Leigh Russell, who I also met via blogger when she wrote me a comment on my blog one day. I too am very interested in reading novels and short stories and try to write some stories myself. In my blog I write about social issues, and differences between the cultures I've experienced, in addition to opinions and my own experience, for example of school. Just wanted to stop by and say hi! I love meeting authors and have met Leigh at one of her signings. What writing do you do?
